MIU's Men's Health Event in 2016.

A local health expo has become a community staple for physical and mental well-being.

The Michigan Institute of Urology’s twelfth annual Men’s Health Event will take place at Ford Field on Saturday, Oct. 8 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

The free event provides screenings for conditions like high blood pressure, colon cancer, diabetes and oral and skin cancers for men over the age of 18. Participants don’t need health insurance to get screened, and COVID-19 boosters will be available as well. They also offer complementary haircuts, lunch and a job fair so participants can feel their best inside and out.

Dr. Michael Lutz is the president of MIU Men’s Health Foundation. He spoke with CultureShift about how the expo has become more holistic over the past decade, and what to expect from this year’s event.

“We’d like to give guys the tools that they can have so that as they go through each decade of their lives, they can live it as healthy as possible, and not have side effects from the illnesses they could have potentially prevented at a younger age.” — Dr. Michael Lutz, Michigan Institute of Urology Men’s Health Foundation.
